Sinkhole Threatens Two Tarpon Spring Homes

TARPON SPRINGS, Florida – Two families in a Pinellas County neighborhood have been evacuated after large sinkholes caused a home to cave in.

Anitra Merricks says her family watched the ground open up, starting about 6 p.m. Thursday.

As family members quickly moved their cars, another hole formed.

The two holes eventually combined to form a large sinkhole. Tarpon Springs public works director Thomas Funcheon says the hole is now large enough “to fit a couple of good-sized vehicles.”

Officials say the house, built in 1958, is too unsafe for Merricks’ grandparents to stay in. Merricks says 83-year-old Virginia Crawford and 90-year-old Nathaniel Crawford, will have to find a new home. They had lived there for 50 years.

The Red Cross is helping relocate the family.

The house next door was also evacuated, due to the sinkhole.

Just before noon Friday, officials say crews were able to fill the sinkhole and secured all utility lines.  Engineers will evaluate the situation later in the afternoon and report on a possible cause of the sinkholes and their recommendations. For more on this article visit.
